1/8: I handed over papers proving that I am a journalist, a former detainee by the #Syrian intelligence, at risk because of my work, and told him "leave me be."

The #Greek policeman said with sarcasm: "who would read or care about this?” I will not forget this all my life.
2/8: In very difficult circumstances I was arrested in closed camps, written on them UNHCR but run by the army and the police.

I was sent back to #Turkey, where I lost my way home due to the torture that I had been subjected to by European Union special forces.
3/8 "We hope you are fine.We reported the same problem. At every opportunity we intervened with EU leaders to urge them to take on their responsibility of receiving asylum seekers," @hrw said.

"We are sorry to hear this.These…reports are of great concern to[us]." @Refugees said

THREAD ❇️A statement was released today by Activists and Civil society Organisations in north west #Syria (1)

They voiced concerns about the fact that the #Russia - #Turkey deal is unclear about the fate of the areas North of the M4 Roadway.
As activists and civil society organisations in north west #Syria we remain against handing over any liberated territory and we call on the #Turkish side to support the opposition factions in retaking these areas, to ensure the return of the civilians from those areas (2)
.#Russian control over areas south of M4 means #Regime’s control is there & aligns with its public statements that it is near taking control of #Ariha, #Jabal_Al_Zawiya #Jisr_Al_Shughour. This does not meet demands/aspirations of millions of #Syrians from these areas (3)

#BREAKING: Angry over his inability to drag #NATO into #Syrian war, dictator #Erdogan has ordered #Turkish security forces to open borders and let #Syrian refugees travel freely to #EU among them there are hundreds of #ISIL members which #Turkey recently released in NE #Syria!

1/In #Idlib recently, Abu Muhammad al-Jolani spoke with @CrisisGroup about how his group, Hei'at Tahrir al-Sham #HTS, is adjusting to the changing realities on the ground in the face of a #Syrian regime offensive and an intensifying humanitarian crisis. bit.ly/39Q22Ln
2/Jolani claims that #HTS has forsworn transnational jihadist ambitions and is readying itself to focus on governing territory under its control. And he told @CrisisGroup: "We are under no illusion that we can govern Idlib on our own."
3/If #Putin and #Erdogan want to preserve the Turco-Russian relationship, they will have to find an accommodation over #Idlib. In such a scenario, Ankara and Moscow would have to find a solution to the HTS question.

#Important #News! #Threade

#Israel #Jerusalem #Russia #Syria

#Russia's #ambassador to #Syria released this week what some saw as a veiled threat to #Israel if Israel continued to #bomb #Iranian positions in the war-torn country.
On February 6th, 20 #Syrian and #Iranian military officials were #killed in an airstrike on a target near #Damascus. The attack also resulted in #Syrian air defense systems accidentally firing on a #Russian 172-passenger plane.
The plane was able to land safely at a nearby airport. However, #Russian #ambassador Alexander Yefimov was not interested in the Israeli justifications. In an interview with Sputnik arabic, Yefimov described the #Israeli #attacks as “#provocative and very #dangerous”.

UPDATE - Northwest #Syria -

Last night, a camp for displaced people was hit by shelling in #Sarmada.

“This is horrifying. It shows how nowhere is really safe for people in #Idlib now”, says Cristian Reynders, MSF Project Coordinator.
This is an area where tens of thousands of people fleeing the #shelling in #Idlib thought they would find #safety.

We have been supporting newly displaced #Syrian #families in #Sarmada for the past two weeks.
#Syria: “We are appalled by the #shelling of this camp, where many people, who had fled the violence, had sought #refuge”, adds our Project Coordinator.

[ Thread: Internationalized #manpower in the war for #Tripoli ]
Long before #Ankara began sending #Syrian Turkmen fighters in Dec to help the #GNA, the number of gung-ho fighters willing to go risk their lives on behalf of the #LNA in W #Libya was insufficient.

That is an important reality even if pro-#LNA voices are loathe to acknowledge it
That’s why the #LNA has used #Sudanese mercs throughout 2019. On LNA side, Sudanese mercs have been basically part of the furniture, eliciting little comment.

Above issue is also the reason why the arrival of a few hundred #Russian fighters near #Tripoli in Sep had a big effect.

Revolutions are about daring.

Revolutions begin when you dare to dream of what you’ve been told is impossible.

This is what the Arabic on Waad Al-Kateab, the #Syrian director of Oscar-nominated film "For Sama," says:

“We dared to dream and we will not regret dignity.”
#Aleppo film-maker vows to continue showing reality of #Syria news.yahoo.com/aleppo-film-ma… h/t @rmslim
#Syrian designer and events planner Reem Masri is behind Oscar-nominated Waad Al-Kateab’s For Sama Oscar dress.

Masri, a refugee based in the southeastern Turkish city of Gaziantep, has known Kateab since 2013. en.vogue.me/awards/waad-al…

There's a lot of chance most of you interested in the Middle East saw this 5-pointed 5-colored star at some time during your (real-life/online) travels. There's also a lot of chance most of you don't exactly know what is symbolizes or represents. A thread on this #Druze symbol.
The #Druze (#Arabic sg. darzī - pl. durūz) are an esoteric ethno-religious community concentrated in #Syria's al-Suwaydāʾ, the Golan Heights and #Lebanon's al-Shūf Mountains. They count around a million adherents, forming a substantial minority in the Levant.
The Druze religion is as syncretic as it is esoteric, mixing elements of Isma'ilism, #Hinduism, Neoplatonism and Gnosticism together in a monotheistic setting. Without going too much into detail, we'll explore some key elements of their creed in order to understand their symbol.

1/#Turkey had well established "soft power" lines of influence throughout the Greater #MiddleEast (North #Africa, Horn of Africa, Eastern #Mediterranean, etc.).
2/But now #Turkish leaders are ready to assume greater risk to assert overt military power in an expeditionary manner to expand #Turkey's influence, and therefore leverage, on conflicts beyond the country's near abroad (#Libya being farther than say #Cyprus or #Syria).
3/However #Turkish leaders don't want to risk significant casualties to their own forces in these expeditionary ops, whether far away like in #Libya or closer to home like in #Syria, when #Turkey's military has spent so much time and $$ building a proxy force of #Syrian fighters.

#BREAKING: According to a former #Turkish Air Force pilot, two Airbus A400Ms of the air force transferred almost 250 Jihadists of #Syrian National Army to #Istanbul from Gazientep airfield minutes ago to be transferred to #Tripoli, #Libya by passenger airplanes within next 4 hrs!
My source corrected me and told me that, #Turkish Air Force has No intention to send these Airbus A400M transport airplanes directly to #Libya due to the fact that #Egypt|ian Air Force's F-16Cs supported by #UAE|AF Airbus A330 MRTT tankers are patrolling in #Libya's airspace now!
#BREAKING: The first group of #AlQaeda affiliated #Syrian mercenaries from #Idlib are now on their ways from #Istanbul, #Turkey to #Tripoli, #Libya on-board flight Number 8U1971/AAW1971 of Afriqiyah Airways's Airbus A320-214 with 5A-ONL register.

A message from an ordinary #Syrian to the people of #Canada:
There is no better way for you to learn the truth about what has been going on in #Syria during the past 9 years, to figure out how heinous are the crimes that have been committed in your names...
... against the #Syrian_people and how much you have been lied to by your own government and media outlets, than coming over here, seeing with your own eyes and hearing with your own ears from the Syrian people on the ground, those who have lived this war day in day out since...
... the very first day, those who have lost their sons and daughters, their brothers and sisters, their fathers and mothers, and in many cases, their whole families, from those who couldn't have proper treatment because of the sanctions that have been imposed and...

What I find sickening re western media furore & "grief" over death of #WhiteHelmets founder James Le Mesurier - where is their outrage, horror or shame over deaths of thousands of #Syrian civilians under "care"of WH & extremist groups? Where are demands for public enquiry?
There are none because these media hypocrites are tasked to defend #WhiteHelmets at all costs, as #Syria "chemical weapon" narratives flounder, OPCW corruption is an open wound for regime-changes-war orchestrators.
Rather than do the decent thing - support a public enquiry into a publicly funded, terrorist-linked organisation which stands accused of organ theft, child abuse & war crimes by Syrian people - MSM prefer to sanctify James Le Mesurier & try to discredit academics, journalists

A palpable revival of #UniversalJurisdiction is underway in Europe.
Here are 7 examples of recent important activities (trials, arrests, investigations) that have taken place only in the last few weeks.
There are certainly more that I am unaware of.
And certainly more to come.
1. #Sweden
>> Arrest of an Iranian national allegedly involved in the #1988Massacre of thousands of detainees. First ever #UniversalJurisdiction case on #Iran to go ahead.

2. #Belgium
>> The trial of a #Rwandan man accused of having participated in the 1994 #genocide of the Tutsi minority is currently underway.

1. There's going to be a lot of this stuff soon.

US 2019 NDAA appropriated funds for @StateDept to deal with #Syrian war crimes & genocide. @SecPompeo has done nothing on it. IMO Assad regime can authorize the SDF to try them in military tribunals with SAA & impose sentence.
2. A civil tribunal should be stood up by the SDC with Damascus' authority. Civilian tribunal gives higher level of due process. The issue of criminal guilt is all that need be proven. ISIS committed pretty much every crime, including all war crimes and genocide such that it's
3. unlikely a proven foreign fighter should ever walk free.

Syrians need to be judged by their own folks. Arabs have no interest in allowing ISIS back. Syrian motivation to join ISIS was entirely different from the foreigners.'

In NE Syria, all foreign
